As many of you are already aware of, I’m on the other end of I-45 in Dallas to take part in the latest edition of Creating Change in Dallas.
While I have been busy getting my learn on, participating in panels and enjoying seeing old friends and meeting new ones, the world keeps on turning and the fools keep on being fools.
So let me get right to this week’s fool.
This week’s Shut Up Fool winner is former NY mayor and current Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg.
Bloomberg is trying to buy his way into the White House, and his TV commercials here in Texas have already hit the ad nauseum level for me.
Something else that made me nauseous and earned him this week’s award is making the comment that his odious Stop and Frisk policy that NYPD gleefully executed against Black, Latinx and trans New Yorkers was ‘to help Blacks’
Sunny Hostin quickly put that azz on blast on The View when she blew up that lie.
And as Hostin noted, he was still vociferously defending that policy last January, but only apologized for it after he jumped into the presidential race and he realized that Black Democrats are big mad about that stop and frisk policy.
All together people. Michael Bloomberg, Shut Up Fool!
